CHURCH SHOULD TAKE UP THE ROLE OF AGENDA SETTING FOR NIGERIA - REV. UJA

The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Rev. Tor Uja has called on the Nigerian Church to take up the responsibility of setting agenda for this country.

He made the call recently in Abuja during a dinner for members of the 2017 Security Committee for the 2017 pilgrimage exercise. He explained that just as the media is saddled with the role of agenda setting for the society so also is the Church expected to set agenda for this nation.

Rev. Uja averred that pilgrimage under his leadership would help to set agenda for Nigeria. According to him, "we need to set an agenda and redefine this nation" Consequently, he said; "we need a virile and proactive Church to turn things around".

The NCPC Boss stated that pilgrimage is about Jesus Christ and Christianity. He called on all Nigerians to make this country our project and lower Nigeria before the Lord. In the words of the NCPC helmsman "what we need in this life God has invested in Nigeria, once Nigeria is healed all our problems are taken care of".

He was hopeful that every pilgrimage programme of the Commission would lift Nigeria from glory to glory. He called on all participants on the 2017 pilgrimage to proceed with joy, peace and progress.

The NCPC boss thanked the members of the security committee for a successful two day security orientation workshop held recently in Abuja.

Rev. Uja reaffirmed that pilgrimage should not be seen as a normal regular activity. He explained that as Christians, pilgrimage should help to build up our faith and propagate it globally. He stressed that pilgrimage must be much more than an activity.

He defined pilgrimage as a person reach for God in the direction of his presence. He added that pilgrimage is a life focusing and transforming exercise.

The NCPC boss explained that everything in Israel is about an experience somebody had. According to him, "pilgrimage is not about seeing places but to allow them to influence your life".

Earlier, the Chairman of the Security Committee for the 2017 pilgrimage, Major Gen. Emmanuel Nienge (RTD) thanked the NCPC boss for the opportunity to serve and for the opportunity to interact and fraternize with one another.

Members of the 2017 Security Committee recently had their two day orientation workshop in Abuja organized by NCPC. The dinner event was their last programme for the year as the Commission is set to commence its inaugural flight on 23rd November, 2017 from Lagos.
